Your story can help defend the rights of LGBTQ Nebraskans
If you are an LGBTQ Nebraskan, you may have experienced discrimination. Currently, there are no explicit statewide laws in Nebraska protecting people from being discriminated against for their gender identity, sexual orientation, and/or gender expression. However, some local communities have broader protections and there is a clear emerging trend in the courts affirming that LGBTQ Nebraskans may already have legal protection from discrimination under existing civil rights laws that prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex or gender.
Your lived experience is valuable and powerful. Personal stories can help educate lawmakers about the need to ensure civil rights such as nondiscrimination for LGBTQ people in the workplace, in housing, everywhere. By sharing stories, we can change hearts and minds, and we can change the world.
